|My three new ADC's surrounding a previous conversion of a French officer intoWellington.|
|This figure started out life as a French officer from the Italeri French Command set, and was probably the most straight forward conversion.|
|This and the following were adapted from Scots Greys (Italeri)|
|I liked the energy of this completed figure with bicorne in hand.|
My second stab at conversions is these Italeri British Horse artillery into Foot artillery.
|The original set as shown on the Plastic Soldier review page.|
The new heads were extras from the HaT British infantry set. Besides this, it was mostly ridding them of their swords and the addition of belts, bread bags and canteens as well as a second end to the gun swab.
This isn't a bad set to work with - I find the figures a bit tall and lanky, but they fit in well enough with my previous conversion of the more stocky Hagen metal Portuguese into British gunners. The gun in these pictures is a Hagen gun, better than the serviceable but not so-detailed Italeri gun pictured above that comes with the horse artillery. I'm certain more of these conversions will eventually make it onto my table as need for more British artillery arises!
So here are the final conversions...
